My Rusty Laundrywashing Experience

SAM_9933Laundry washing is a chore I don’t mind doing at all. I mean how hard is sorting clothes, pouring detergent and fabric conditioner then pushing buttons.  It’s one of the easiest household chores there is.  I didn’t realize the ease of using a washing machine until I worked abroad, where I had to do my own laundry.  In the Philippines, I didn’t have to bother myself with laundry because we had help to do those kinds of tasks along with cleaning, cooking, ironing and the rest.  So faced with stacking up of dirty clothes and not enough clean ones to wear, I had to face laundrywashing head on in a foreign country.  Patience is one of the traits I had to develop as I had to share the landrywashing machine with others.  I eventually got excited with the choices I had of good smelling laundry powder and fabric conditioner.  I loved wearing sweet smelling clothes and lying on sweet smelling beddings.  Ironing is another story though, which needless to say is my least favorite chore.

SAM_9932So what have I learned about laundry washing, aside from the fact that there are designer perfume scents of laundry wash to choose from?  First, I learned that if you don’t use the right amount of soap for the load of wash you stuffed in your washing machine, the clothes will stink.  Lesson number two, i learned the hard way that you can’t wash all colored and whites at the same time to save time.  I painfully had to stop using my whites that have patches of colors that couldn’t pass off as designs. Third, when the clothes have labels that say “for handwash only”, believe it and don’t even try to put it in the washing machine unless you want it tattered.  Fourth, there are stains that are almost impossible to remove so you need the help of zonrox, calamansi, or vinegar to help you out.  You will have success in most cases, but in the others, you will have torn material and some bits of stain yet.  So next lesson, use zonrox bleach sparingly and with caution.  When it comes to rust stains, you can apply calamansi directly on the stain for a few minutes before washing. Hopefully, there will be rust no more.

One thought on “My Rusty Laundrywashing Experience

  1. For me the best natural alternative to fabric softener is Vinegar. This means you can skip an expensive laudry product and use vinegar instead. Vinegar has an added benefit of helping to fully break down laundry detergent and its residue. Your clothes can actually be cleaner and softer when you add vinegar to the washing machine. Using vinegar will cause less detergent sensitive allergies for families that struggle with sensitive skin.

    How to use it just Add 1/2 cup of vinegar pag nakababad na yung clothes sa washing machine leave it there for 30 minutes then add soap . My tita naman pag natanggal na yung sabon ibabad nya yung damit sa tubig saka nya ihahalo ang 1/2 na vinegar then papaikutin sa washing machine it really does help to soften your laundry.
